Stir-fried Leeks, Arrow Heads and Minced Meat


Stir-fried Leeks, Arrow Heads and Minced Meat

Made this on the 2nd day of CNY. I usually cook leek and arrowheads (ngar ku) with siew yuk (roasted pork) but I did not have any roasted pork so made do with minced pork instead, I supposed minced chicken meat can be used as well.

Sliced and clean leeks into 2" in length. Peel, clean and sliced arrowheads, rinse and drain the water away. Marinaded minced meat with some soy sauce, pepper, a wee bit of sesame oil and some cornflour. Do add a bit of water inside so that the meat is not too tough.

Heat a little oil in a wok and put in the leeks. Fry till they started to turn brown at the edges. Dish up and set aside. Add some oil to the wok again and fry the minced meat till cooked. Add in leek and arrowhead. Pour in some water and let it come to a boil. Pour in oyster sauce to taste and add in a little dark soy sauce for some colour. Add a little sugar to bring out the taste. Cover wok and simmer till arrowhead slices are soften or to the texture you prefered. By then the gravy would have dried up, or you may thicken with some cornstarch solution.

Dish up and serve.
